Dana - "Jones pulled out of UFC 170 because of lingering issues from the Gus fight"

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is apparently still feeling the effects of his rough UFC 165 title defense against Alexander Gustafsson.

That's what UFC president Dana White says anyway. In the post-fight media scrum following UFC 167, White addressed the reason why Jones pulled out of his UFC 170 title defense against Glover Teixeira despite the bout just being announced a few days ago:

"Jon Jones went back in the gym and just didn't feel good. He said his legs were still bothering him and his eye is bothering him. He still banged up from that fight."

Here is the full article

I am getting this feeling Jones will never be the same again because of this Gus fight

That explains why he wants to retire at 30.

Hmmmm, well I'm glad he's not coming back too early if he's still shook from that fight. This should only make him stronger.
